Meet Gina

On your therapeutic journey, I believe that your experience deserves no judgment, trust, genuineness, and true advocacy. I am passionate about working with children, teens, and young adults. I assist individuals gain insight into themselves and facilitate self expression through creative problem solving.

My approach: I utilize a hands on approach with the power of choice in your session. With the application of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Directive Play Therapy techniques, individuals can build resilience, self regulation and self esteem in their lives. Some interventions I use with my younger clients include but are not limited to Sand-tray, art and painting, sensory boxes, therapeutic use of Legos and much more.  I am available to you in person and online!

“My child talks about you often. You have truly seen her and her personality that no other counselor had even noticed. We will do whatever it takes to continue to see you.”

“I love hearing that my child is opening up more to you. Thank you for all you do.”

“I have been noticing things about my child for years, trying to get support for them. Thank you for SEEING THEM. It’s nice to just feel validated in some of my concerns.”
